I’m not a Potterhead — more a casual viewer/reader and I got my references mostly from the fandom. And yes, like many other fandoms, some elements (a teeny tiny element) can be pretty toxic. I’m glad I always found the chill ones (and yes, Harry Potter belongs to the fans. J.K who.)

I first read Harry Potter was when I was in… junior/secondary school, I guess? I read the Indonesian translation, and I remember I finished the first book in the car — so it was like a battle of “must… finish… the… book!” and getting carsick.

I guess just like many first readers, we always imagine — and aspire — to be the main characters/main group. In this case, the Gryffindors. The champion of justice, truth, and everything good. While the Slytherins are the polar opposite — the evil side, boo hiss. Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff who and what.

For long, I aspire to be a Gryffindor. I thought that’s the most important thing. Nobody wanted to be a Slytherin — especially a Ravenclaw and a Hufflepuff, right?

And definitely not a Hufflepuff. What, them crybabies and insignificant?

Then, I learned more about the communities and the Tiktoks — yes, the Tiktoks.

And you know what? I’m obviously a Hufflepuff. And I’m really proud of that.

I cry easily, I tend to make jokes on the wrong time and on the wrong place, I’m not as brave as a Gryffindor (I TRIED, OK,) my ✨aesthetics✨ are those lo-fi music vibe, I worship Animal Crossing (fun fact: I only have one game, and one game only, on my Nintendo Switch: The Animal Crossing New Horizon) because other games not as chill as Animal Crossing stresses me out, and most of times, I can’t be bothered of many things because it doesn’t go with my ✨zen✨ (kidding. But seriously, working as Support teaches you to not looking for drama because who needs drama if you do user-facing job?)

And being a Hufflepuff is actually okay and pretty cool. Just as awesome as being a Gryffindor, a Slytherin, and a Ravenclaw.

Or if you are not into Harry Potter; that’s totally okay too. You do you.

(I take dibs as Dr. Watson.)

Slightly Support-related. I just realized the embed code format that you got from the Tiktok app — e.g. https://vt.tiktok.com/ZS3WexqA/ — won’t work. Copy-pasting the code on the editor will only generate a Paragraph block and the URL string.

The embed will work if we use desktop-version URL, though. Like so:

https://www.tiktok.com/@bexinblue/video/6917343237355097346

I’m going to check with the others next week. For now, it’s time to go to sleep and weekend.

Update: I have opened a GitHub issue with Gutenberg folks here.

I don’t think this is super urgent so I will treat this as low-priority — but it feels good to open an issue; at least we are aware such issue around 😄

  1. selama ini ngikut quiz di mana-mana sih hasilnya either Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. some people are proud to be Slytherin and Ravenclaw. Gryffindor sih overrated ya, Hufflepuff yang underated, dan setelah dipikir-pikir.. iya aku tidak seberani anak-anak Gryffindor. :)))

    1. Gryffindor itu tipe yang, “ADA TROLL. AYO SERBU.” Dan aku yang, “… … … halo polisi iya ini ada troll bisa tolongon ga.”
